An Introduction to the Design of Small-Scale Embedded Systems.
Support site

This book (now definitely old!) has a more theoretical approach. Its chapters go deep into a range of important topics, e.g. memory technologies, data conversion, numerical routines, low power supply, and design methodologies. It is useful for students and practicing engineers who want to gain a deeper understanding of the main issues impacting embedded systems.
